The Queendom of Ellamaa is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 277 million Ellamaanimals love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ellamaanimal economy, worth 10.9 trillion Ellamoneys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 39,296 Ellamoneys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellamaa's national animal is the Ellammas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellamaa is ranked 78,852nd in the world and 81st in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 58.94 on the Human Development Index.
